Australian police arrest boy near scene of 'terror-linked' shooting

Australian police arrested a boy after he was questioned about his social media posts on Tuesday outside the same high school attended by a teenager who last week shot dead a police worker in an attack authorities say was “linked to terrorism”. The boy was arrested when he threatened and intimidated police who wanted to talk to him about his social media activity, New South Wales state police said in a statement. On Friday, a 15-year-old boy of Iraqi-Kurdish descent identified as Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar gunned down a police employee leaving the headquarters of the New South Wales Police.
